Discovery time week 2

Today at discovery time I made a sewed a pillow. I made it out of scraps of material. I discovered that when you actually are using small stiches the pillow will stay together tightly. I found having the patience hard to do all the stiching. I still have some things to do so I am taking it home to finish.

Discovery time reflection

Every Monday from 9:20- 12:40 we do discovery time with poutokomanawa. We do many activities so we can discover and learn from the activities. We have a 30 minute CMIYC session somewhere in the time. This week I made Gloop or Oobleck which is a solid and a liquid. I discovered that when you push down on the gloop fast it's solid and when you put your finger in slow it is a liquid. The other activity was tents. I discovered that it is quite hard to put up a tent with a beginner and putting down the tent. I discovered when you cover the tent in blankets it gets really hot really fast.

SLC reflection

On Tuesday I had my SLC which is a student led conference which is what we do at the end of each term
1) How do you think you did on your SLC? What was the highlight?
I think I did really well at explaining my learning and not just saying what was on the screen. My highlight was showing my learning to my mum
2) What did you do differently to make your SLC stand out?
I spoke from my heart and not the screen and asking my mum questions about my learning.
3) How will you make your Home Led Conference in Term 3 be awesome? What things might you do to make it awesome?i might go somewhere like a cafe and do it over lunch and make my family feel like they have been in my class
